On Wednesday, the Sydney Thunder will take on the Melbourne Renegades in the 55th match of the Big Bash League (BBL) 2021-22 season (January 19). The Thunder dominated the previous match between the two teams, winning by a massive margin of 129 runs. At the moment, they have 31 points in their possession.
The Melbourne Renegades have no chance of making the playoffs because they are at the bottom of the standings with only 15 points accumulated. Even if they win this match against Sydney Thunder, they will not be able to qualify for the next round. If they had prevailed in their match against the Melbourne Stars last week, the situation would have been different.
